Some, residents five miles from the unguarded armory telephoned authorities to report the explosion. Firemen, who prevented the flames from spreading to a structures and saved most of about 20 in the compound, said one five-ton truck was "blown as high as a kite" by the blast, which caused no deaths or injuries.

Flames damaged four of the vehicles. The remains of primer cord fuses and devices" were found in the motor pool lot where the explosion occurred. Authorities said some of the devices were found affixed to trucks in the lot. Agents of the FBI took jurisdiction over the case and promptly dropped a curtain of secrecy, saying only that "the FBI is conducting an inquiry to determine if there has been any violation of federal laws." The trucks belonged to the 144th National Guard Artillery, which includes a 1,000 man unit training since its callup last May at Ft. Lewis, Wash.

The outfit had been scheduled to de part for Asia Sept. 25. Rep. Ed Reinecke, recently said he learned service records of some of the unit's men had been altered to show they were qualified in use of weapons and equipment for which they had not been trained. An investigation into the charge is under way.

Members of the police bomb squad, who conducted a preliminary investigation before FBI stepped into the case, said the type of explosive agent used on the trucks was not deter mined immediately.

GUfr SfDiljll CrOQii OAKLAND (UPI) Two white officers were summarily fired yesterday after a fusillade of police bullets smashed into the headquarters of the Black No one was hurt in the predawn attack, which came as an apparent aftermath to the murder trial of Huey P. Newton, founder of the Panthers. The officers were arrested on charges of felony assault and were later dimissed from the force by the city manager. At least a dozen carbine bullets smashed through the front window of the store front headquarters.

A display poster of Newton, 26-year old handsome Negro, was riddled. The incident occurred about 27 hours after Newton was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the slaying of a policeman in a curbside shootout last fall. He was acquitted of wounding another officer. The prosecution had asked for a first degree murder con viction carrying a possible death penalty in the eight week trial which fanned racial tensions in this city of 386,000, including 115,000 Negroes. The shooting was the second assult involving police and Black Panthers in less than a week.

A group of off duty policemen and civilians attacked a dozen Black Panthers last Wednesday outside a Brooklyn, N. Y. courtroom. A federal suit seeking decentralization of the New York Police Department and an injunction against police harassment was filed in New York yesterday by the Negro organization. The rifle firing here was witnessed by a young soldier, whose identity was withheld by police.

He obtained the license number of the patrol car and the officers were quickly taken into custody. Police Chief Charles Gain first suspended the officers, Richard V. Williams, 28, and Robert W. Farrell, 26. Six hours later, Gain signed complaints accusing them of "assault with firearms on an inhabited dwelling."

There was some question whether Connally had turned down an invitation to campaign with the vice president but an aide said the governor simply was busy at the state capital in Austin with paper work. Yarborough had endorsed McCarthy before the National Democratic Convention. In Los Angeles earlier, the vice president acknowledged that McCarthy "has serious about the support of my candidacy." But Humphrey insisted that McCarthy as well as other dissident Democrats have to choose among Nixon, Gov. George Wallace and himself. And Humphrey said he couldn't believe "my friend" McCarthy would want Wallace to decide the election or to have Nixon as president.

Humphrey told a breakfast meeting of Businessmen for Humphrey that a central issue of the campaign was which of the two major party candidates "can vou trust?" 1 Humphrey said the deci- DIRECT $10 Month Payments too!

A bullet hole was discovered in the roof of their squad car. They joined the department in 1965, a year before the slain officer, John Frey, and his wounded companion, Herbert Heanes, but were not believed to be "close friends," according to a department spokesman.

Mayor John Reading described the incident as "deplorable." "This type of behavior cannot be tolerated in any case, particularly when it involves a police officer," Reading said. The headquarters of the militant Negro group is located on the ground floor of an aged building three miles from downtown Oakland. The office was deserted when the hail of bullets struck at 1:30. "It sounded like three explosions," said William Reagan who lives across the street. Newton's attorney, Charles Garry, said the party founder had advised his followers to Chairman Eastland's telegram to Justice Fortas said: "A number of members of the Senate Justice Committee have expressed the desire to have you return to the committee for in terrogation on certain films and cases involving the issue of obscenity, matters raised by Sens.

Allott and Griffin, and in other matters relative to your confirmation. Please indicate as soon as possible your willing ness to appear and indicate the earliest date convienent to you." The chairman declined to say which members of the commit "keep your cool." Garry said Newton believed police were "just looking for an excuse to vent their resentment against blacks." Newton later told newsmen, "The Black Panthers will not react violently to the shooting this morning. I've admonished the Black Panthers to keep their heads. "There is always danger of the younger Panthers being pro voked by the police department it happens daily but I hope for no reaction from the Black Panthers and I ask the general public to remain calm." Garry and Prosecutor Lowell Jensen are scheduled to argue tomorrow on defense motions for a new trial, arrest of judgment and bail to free Newton during his appeal. Newton faces a prison sentence of 2 to 19 years.

Robert P. Griffin, leader of a bipartisan Senate group seeking to block confirmation. Even if Fortas refuses to return for further questioning, it now appears likely that the committee will reopen the hearings.

Among the witnesses who maybe asked to testify are Richard Goodwin, a former White House aide, and Secretary of Defense Clark Clifford. Justice Fortas and Clifford are said to have completely rewritten the State of the Union speech prepared for the President two years ago by Goodwin. Some critics base their opposition to Fortas on his admitted close relationship with President Johnson, his long time friend. They claim this violates the constitutional doctrine on separation of powers. Fortas also has come under heavy criticism for his part in court decisions overturning local and state obscenity laws.

The request was made in a telegram sent to the Supreme Court associate justice in late afternoon by the committee chairman, Sen. James O. Eastland after a day-long wrangle within the committee.

There was no indication last night whether Justice Fortas would agree to return for what Eastland termed further "interrogation." The request that Fortas return for further questioning was made by Eastland on behalf of "a number of members" of the committee. There was no com mittee vote. However, the committee has scheduled a vote today on a compromise proposal for reopening the hearings but fixing a 50 hour deadline on the hear ings for committee action on confirmation. tee had asked to interrogate the justice. The Fortas nomination has been under consideration by the Judiciary Committee for more than two months.

Fortas was questioned extensively by the committee during the earlier hearings that opened July 11 and closed July 23. Since then, opponents claim they have found new evidence touching on his fitness to be chief justice. A request that the hearings A. 950 W. MILL SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF.
